As we head into the holiday season, many of us will spend time with aging parents – and we may note changes in them that concern us. To give us some insight, please join Brigham gerontologist Julia Loewenthal, MD, for a virtual Zoom session on Caring for Your Aging Parents on Wednesday, December 7th from 12:00-1:00PM. Dr. Loewenthal treats medically complex older adults using a holistic integrative medicine approach. She will offer advice on how to care for your aging parents while caring for yourself during the joyful and stressful holiday season.
A Zoom link will be forwarded to you once you register.
